    Work on Kalabagh Dam already started?

    Good, good. With Bhasha to be formally inaugurated very soon both dams will be on their way this year into construction, and more to follow after that, as promised by President Musharraf.

    'Clandestine' work on KBD starts, SCA concerned

    The Sindh Chamber of Agriculture (SCA) has expressed grave concern over continuation of construction work on Kalabagh Dam secretly despite clear announcement by President Pervez Musharraf and has demanded from the President, the Prime Minister and the Sindh Chief Minister to stop the work. A regular meeting of SCA was held here on Sunday that was presided by its President Syed Qamar Zaman Shah. The meeting was briefed by its member Faqir Nusrat Hussain who has visited Punjab recently. He told other members that the construction work on KBD was on secretly and Rs 1,220 million from WAPDA reserve funds have been spent on it during eight months of the current financial year. He maintained that heavy machinery was being shifted from Tarbela and construction and repair of residential colonies, workshops and offices was in progress. He said the speed of work suggests that by October 2006 the construction would be in full swing.

      Wrong, we need to better our irrigation system to stop wastage of current water released. Most of our water is wasted this way. We don't need big dams right now.

        Actually there is need of water reservoirs on technical grounds!

        You can't just deny the whole fact. Now it is on where, when and how big the reservoirs are made.
